ABAB Accountants en Adviseurs chooses IT infrastructure from Proact – again

ABAB Accountants en Adviseurs, an all-round accountancy and consultancy organisation with around 700 employees working in 14 branches, has again selected Proact as its supplier for a new IT infrastructure. Proact will deliver and implement the complete solution, consisting of storage, back-up and switches, including 24x7 support for the hardware and software. ABAB have signed a five-year contract.

The current NetApp storage environment had reached the end of its technical service life. The goal of the renewal was to obtain a new storage infrastructure based on NetApp that would be future-proof, guarantee increased availability and scalability with reduced management complexity.

Frans van Loon, ICT Manager and Hans Vingerhoets, team leader for technical management at ABAB Accountants en Adviseurs: “ABAB has found Proact to be an expert party to work with. With short lines of communication and a pragmatic approach, Proact always ensures an accurate solution. With Proact, you’re not a number, but a valued client. When you’re dealing with the heart of the ABAB infrastructure, you want to have the very best support.”

The total solution delivered by Proact consists of NetApp systems, back-up software from CommVault, and Cisco switches. ABAB thereby has a highly-scalable environment that ensures the performance and availability of applications and processes.
A minimal impact on the performance and management of the NetApp storage environment is guaranteed through the maximum integration with NetApp snapshots from a single graphic user interface from the CommVault software for all back-up and restore tasks.

In addition to supporting the 10 Gb Ethernet, the new Cisco network switches will also provide more redundancy to the infrastructure.
Lucas den Os, Managing Director of Proact Netherlands, says, ”There was an effective partnership between Proact and ABAB from the very beginning. With their choice of Proact, ABAB is once again well provided for a new period, and has access to best-in-class solutions, know-how and experience.”
